I realized that I am a waste of space...I grow crops, only to be paid back by abuse. They don't want me to die, they just want to beat me up but continue to force me to do that one labor. No one wants to help me. Nobody loves or even likes me.

First Appearance Lurking in the Dark

Syi is the main protagonist of Lurking in the Dark, and later one of the protagonists in Split Personality, although when exactly has to be revealed. She is a humanoid scarecrow, cursed to grow the crops of the town known as Hynau before escaping that role.


Lurking in the Dark

Syi appears as an intelligent scarecrow who was meant to feed the citizens of her hometown, Hynau, before being abducted by a fake goddess of life.

Split Personality


Physical Appearance

Syi appears as a somewhat tall woman with arms and legs that are those of sticks, while having a feminine body and head. She has short blue hair that is tightened into a ponytail, and has blue eyes and blue clothing as well, her sticks being a dark red color. Her skin is of a brown color.


Syi was born as a normal human, raised for seventeen years on a farm, using blue sugar to feed plants to make them grow. However, she was brutally murdered on the spot by a maddened villager, loss of thirst having driven him insane. Her spirit pours into the ground and takes up the scarecrow's body nearby, eventually taking parts of her dead body and covering her wooden core with them. Her "ugly body" as the bystanders would say would pick on her and her body, throwing rocks and such.


Syi has quite a few abilities, her most basic being to scare away birds and to provide nourishment for the village she used to live in.  But otherwise, she can rip her roots straight from the ground, then walk around, and strangle those who attempt attacking her.  A simple glare from Syi can lie the most resistant person to rest on the ground.


Syi is usually rather cranky and shows much resent towards those in her village, although is shy and somewhat friendly towards new people, as long as they don't get on her nerves quickly enough.  If one of her most important friends is being attacked, she will simply fight against their kidnapper, although won't care if said friend is alive or not in the end.



Syi and May didn't exactly get to meet until closer to the end of Lurking in the Dark, whereas she helped Syi escape the wrath of Hene.


Hene acted quite strangely towards Syi throughout Lurking in the Dark, and attempted destroying her in the end, only to become a scarecrow and be forced to befriend Syi and May. It is unknown what happened to her, although it's been presumed she was sent to the depths of Hell.



  • Syi, despite being a scarecrow, somewhat has a human face.
